It's one of the most important topics of 2020, and now it's making news in the channel.

Here we go again with another exciting edition of the Channel Partners podcast, Coffee with Craig and Kevin.

It’s a jam-packed episode starting with some breaking news! (Well, at least Kevin thought it was.) The guys will break down what’s on tap for the newly announced Channel Partners Virtual show, Sept. 8-10. You’ll learn how you can take advantage of much of the same content and networking you would expect from a live Channel Partners event, only online from the comfort of your own home or business.

Wildix’s Robert Cooper

Then Robert Cooper, general manager at Wildix, the UC provider, enters the coffeehouse to see if he will double down on come controversial comments from earlier in the year. He dubbed some of Wildix’s bigger rivals “vampire vendors” and “walking dead.”

Finally, an insightful conversation with Telarus’ Brandon Knight, who introduces us to the Xposure Diversity and Inclusion Council. The Council wants to be a “beacon in the tech services industry,” where individuals from all different backgrounds can collaborate. You will be surprised – or unfortunately, not surprised – to hear some of Knight’s stories of bias and stereotyping right here in the channel.

All of that, plus the usual shenanigans that you would expect from Craig and Kevin.
